he has very nice conformation but I guess you are allowed your opinion. Back yard pet?? Personally im not fussed whether the stallion I choose runs free on a property or is stabled at some rich snobby barn. Who cares where he lives? Its the temperament etc that makes a nice stallion, not where he lives :roll: not every breeder has the money for a swanky stud but this doesnt mean its a bad thing
EDIT - I wasnt going to go into any huge explanations but I changed my mind :) the lady who owns the stallion was at a nice establishment but her husband kicked her and the horses out in favour of his younger lover/new girlfriend or whatever. She had to find herself somewhere where she cold keep her 16 horses and so she moved into the property she is now at.
None of this bothers me and I know he isnt in great condition as far as muscle tone goes at the moment but to add to his owners woes, she broke her arm when she was moving and he hasnt been ridden much the last couple of months. This doesnt bother me either. His temperament is what it all comes down to for me (only with conformation which personally I think is fine).
Even if he was a "backyard pet" does this make him any less of a suitor than any other nice stallion??
